Building Faith

Are you burdened for those who have no hope? Are looking for creative ways to share the Gospel with young people? The Lord is opening doors in areas where people are persecuted for their faith. Your partnership enables GNPI to make the most of a new opportunity for children in Muslim cultures to learn about Bible characters and to build their faith in Jesus at an early age.

The New Angle Media Project is currently being tested in Indonesia among their population of 95 million Muslims and includes interactive children’s stories from both the Old and New Testament. Once complete this project will be replicated within some of the hardest-to-reach nations on earth. Our ministry partners even designed a follow-up system which includes a button for app users to delete the programs if they sense danger.

Studies indicate the audience with the greatest potential for growth on Facebook is Muslim women. Imagine these women using their phones to share the animated stories with their children. The potential is amazing.

Thank you for helping to share the Gospel in meaningful ways with people of all ages!

God Multiplied It

Has the Lord ever taken one of your dreams for sharing the Gospel beyond all you expected? Consider how your gifts are bringing Christian workers together to make new disciples and to expand the Church.

Author Shawn Tyler explains how the New Angle Media Project began as a simple idea for children’s stories and grew into a strategic plan to reach more people by putting the stories on a free app, adding questions for interaction, and working with internationals to illustrate and animate the project for multicultural appeal.

Shawn says, “GNPI has taken it and expanded it many times over. It’s so much bigger than I ever dreamed! It reminds me of the little boy who offered the five loaves and two fish to Jesus.”

Effective Evangelism

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

Have you experienced the delight of watching others enjoy beloved people and places for the first time? This is one of the reasons I welcome others to accompany me when I travel internationally. It was a blessing to have Drs. Leif and Amy Ford, from High Lakes Christian Church in La Pine, Oregon, join me on a trip to Kenya and Uganda last summer! Leif is on staff at the church, and Amy is a university professor and a counselor.

The Fords taught a week-long course at Messiah Theological Institute to approximately 30 students in Mbale, Uganda. They also visited GNPI production teams in Uganda and Kenya.

Amy said, “A highlight of the trip was touring the GNPI regional centers in both Mbale, Uganda, and Nairobi, Kenya. The team of dedicated employees at both facilities have top-notch skills, have access to impressive levels of audiovisual and computer equipment, function with a clear vision within the local, national, and continental levels, and operate with a tremendous amount of influence and favor. After viewing how GNPI is using multimedia platforms to share Jesus with individuals and groups, plant community churches, and transform culture, I am led to believe that GNPI might be both the most effective and efficient means of evangelism to which I have ever been exposed.”

Thank you for your investment to make these teams in Africa what they are. Your partnership is making a difference for Christ!

“Around The Network” – Psalm 117

Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible, but it casts an eternal vision. It is a beautiful sneak peek into heaven to experience the nations of the world praising the Lord together.

GNPI ministry partners from 12 nations collaborated on this special project. Please enjoy and share this video!

A Real Help

You are helping take the Gospel into all the world. Your support of Project Nomad is meeting needs and encouraging believers in places where only half of a percent of people are Christians.

One trainee from northwestern India says, “Few people from my area even know about Jesus. This will really help to share the message of Jesus.”

Please pray the Lord will open hearts of people in northwestern India as they learn of His grace within their own culture.

Jesus: Our Shepherd

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

The birth of Christ is a wonderful Christmas message for those who love and follow him. It was His “good news for all men” message because it is a message of inclusion, invitation, and imagination. Jesus said: “I am the Good Shepherd. I know my own sheep and my own sheep know me … I put the sheep before myself, sacrificing myself if necessary. You need to know that I have other sheep in addition to those in this pen. I need to gather and bring them, too. They’ll also recognize my voice. Then it will be one flock, one Shepherd.”  ‭‭John‬ ‭10:14-16 ‭MSG‬‬

As we remember Jesus in a manger, with the flocks of sheep which were watched by their shepherds, let’s not forget that the message from God is clear and consistent. He desires all mankind to know, love, and follow Him, making one flock led by one Shepherd, our King Jesus!

A Good Platform among Muslims

Your giving is influencing young students for Christ in Tanzania through a Solar Kit.

Christian workers in Tanzania write, “Praise the Lord! We are grateful for the Solar Kit which has been instrumental in proclaiming the Gospel in a Muslim dominated school.”

The school has 431 pupils and only six pupils are Christians. The headmaster allows the Christian workers to show films to the pupils. The entire school turns out on Wednesday and Friday afternoons to watch the Old Testament movies. This provides a good platform to share with these children without resistance. After the films, the Christian workers give a conclusion and explain where those biblical principles are found in Scripture.

These Christian workers are encouraged and excited. They said, “We believe the Word of God is being sown in these young souls, and we expect to obtain a great harvest in the future. We also believe God will give us favor in other schools and open more doors to reach out to those who don’t know Christ.”

Tom Ommemo of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, is working directly with the Christian workers in Tanzania on your behalf to deliver these evangelistic tools. Tom validates their experience with his own when sharing the Gospel in African villages.
